Riding Mountain

Of all the national parks that I've visited, Riding Mountain surprised me the most. Located on the Manitoba Escarpment, a long stretch of steep hills dating back 65 million years, the park rises from the surrounding farmland like an island in a sea of prairies. Here you'll find Clear Lake, its startling blue waters bordering the Wasagaming townsite. Strolling around this small community of log cabins, some of them dating back to the 1930s, you might feel like you've accidentally wandered onto the set of a movie. I arrived for the first time on a rainy afternoon. It was early spring in Manitoba and the black bears were just starting to emerge from their winter dens to feast on the dandelions
